The vision of this project is to build an eco-educational village for both ecological and social value. Live, teach and play can occur at the same time in the city and education does not just happen in the school. The boundaries of different functions and people no longer exist, and every activity can be connected. The workshops in the plaza are also the school’s outdoor classrooms, making the city part of the education experience. A good education includes an authentic sense of community, and this project allows Pacoima to catalyze a real urban renaissance in the future.
